Varsity Basketball Player, 18, Allowed Back on Court
Daily Mail 2.1.14
Bailey Roby, a varsity high school basketball player, with two prosthetic limbs, is now allowed back on the court — after his school benched him over concerns he might hurt other players.
Bailey Roby, 18, who plays for Mountain Vista High School in Highlands Ranch, was born with fibular hemimelia – meaning there is no fibula in either leg – and with three toes on each of his feet, The Denver Post reports.
The 6-foot-3 senior — he stands 6-foot-5 on two special prosthetic legs — runs to a spot beyond the 3-point arc and awaits a pass so he can perform his specialty, the long-range jump shot.
